Description Bernd Eckenfels 2015-11-20 21:10:17 UTC
As reported here:

http://marc.info/?l=tomcat-dev&m=144668952212845&w=2

The documentationshould use "^" instead of "\" and use the correct continuation prompt (or none).

https://github.com/apache/tomcat/blob/trunk/webapps/docs/windows-service-howto.xml#L363

The doc is wrong on the main tomcat site and the comments pointing this out are quite old. This is why I filed an additional bug even if there is no documentation/site category here. Sorry for thatby my tomcat-dev mail was also unresponded. The above post does contain a proposed diff.
